Stele of Pashed

Stele of Pashed

The stele with a rounded top has representations on four records, framed by a thin engraved line. The top record is occupied by a scene of worship: the deceased Pashed, dressed in a long magnificently pleated skirt, is depicted kneeling with his arms raised in the act of worshiping Osiris, portrayed with the white crown on his head and the scepter uas in his hands. An offering table is among the dead and the god with loaves and a lotus flower. Horus and Isis are behind Osiris in a standing position. Four columns of hieroglyphics, engraved in a stylized way, mention the name of the deceased and the traditional epithets of Osiris.
Seventeen figures identified with the relatives of the deceased are visible in the three lower registers, portrayed while beating their chest in the sign of mourning. Each figure is accompanied by hieroglyphics showing the name.
